Top Hospital + "A" for Patient Safety
In November 2019, Inova Alexandria Hospital was again awarded an "A" from The Leapfrog Group's Hospital Safety Grade, marking straight "A's" for two years running. This designation recognizes our efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.
In December 2019, highlighting our nationally recognized achievements in patient safety and quality, Inova Alexandria Hospital was again named a Top General Hospital by The Leapfrog Group.
Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, maternity care, and the hospital’s capacity to prevent medication errors. The rigorous standards are defined in each year’s Top Hospital Methodology.
